Potential applications of metagenomics to assess the biological effects of food structure and function

Metagenomics, or the collective study of genomes is an important emerging area in microbiology and related fields, and is increasingly being recognized as a tool to characterize the microbial community structure and function of diverse sample types.

The formation and breakdown of structured clots from whole milk during gastric digestion

The behaviour of milk fat globules in the coagula of unheated and heated (90 °C for 20 min) whole milk during gastric digestion was investigated using a human gastric simulator.

High pressure processing of meat: effects on ultrastructure and protein digestibility

The effects of high pressure processing (HPP, at 175 and 600 MPa) on the ultrastructure and in vitro protein digestion of bovine longissimus dorsi muscle meat were studied.
